Coaching leadership teams to make a meaningful impact

We are bringing you a duo of highly credentialed tech leaders, who will be able to take your leadership team to the next level.

Effective leadership teams make or break organisations and collaborating well as leaders, especially in the face of diverging priorities and skill sets, can feel difficult. Using concepts from Ruth Wageman, Bruce Tuckman and Patrick Lencioni you will learn how to approach improving your own leadership team, or support your direct reports as a leadership team.

This interactive, online workshop will allow participants to work together on examples from their own leadership teams and put these learnings into practice. It is a followup to their free LAST Club session.

Fiona Siseman and Alia Rose Connor are the Co-Founders of Frank & Eddy Leadership, Incin New York City. Fiona's time working in Australia gives her a great insight into conditions in this part of the world. In addition, Fiona and Alia's work in the United States and Sweden, with Spotify, as well as their work with other organisations, will allow a wider insight into the attributes that great leadership teams display.

More about Fiona:

I am an enabler and a generalist. I began my career in operations and delivery roles with Lonely Planet. It was here that I honed my systems thinking and people-first leadership skills as I built effective teams, managed digital projects, and discovered the joy of helping people and teams connect and work effectively together. After a stint at Luna Tractor helping teams with agile transformations I moved across the world from Australia to the US – a jump into the unknown!

I am a coach and a leader. It was at Spotify that I found my love of enabling and growing leaders. I saw how the power of a well-placed question or observation could unlock a team. I managed coaches and engineering managers, facilitated the right conversations, and built a high-performing senior leadership team in a large Platform Engineering organization (for a period, leading a cross-functional organization of 130 people). Through this work I gained the skills and experience in coaching leaders and teams to be effective, resilient, and adaptable in an environment of fast-paced growth and change.

More about Alia:

I am an engineer and entrepreneur I started out as a software engineer, passionate about problem-solving. From there, I opened an agency building e-commerce sites for small publishers, and ventured further into entrepreneurship by launching a successful real-time photo-sharing product which partnered with the likes of Brides Magazine and the Clinton Global Initiative.

I am a coach and a team manager My passion for working with teams eventually led me to coaching at Spotify, where I coached and grew leaders and teams who changed the face of the music industry. The ever-changing, fast-paced environment (I helped grow an organization from 40 to over 450 people) shaped me into a strong senior leader and taught me to manage, grow, and nourish my own team.
